WAIANAE, Hawaii -

A nearly 12-hour standoff in Waianae ended peacefully just before 4 p.m. Sunday.

One man was barricaded in an apartment at Waimaha Sunflower, an affordable housing complex on 85-965 Mill St. in Waianae. Honolulu Police Department's SWAT team was on site with a negotiator. They say the suspect had one firearm.

Police confirm it started at 10:35 p.m. on Saturday night on Farrington Hwy. Police say the driver fled down Waianae Valley Road, firing several rounds at multiple police vehicles. After hitting a fence, the driver abandoned the vehicle and ran to a friend's apartment at Waimaha Sunflower at around 3 a.m., where two females and a male were.

According to police, the male and one female left the unit Saturday night, and the second female left the unit at around 3 p.m. Sunday. The male suspect surrendered without incident at 4 p.m. Sunday.

He has been taken into police custody and will be booked for auto theft, attempted murder, fled scene, and firearms offenses. 

Mill Street between Waianae Valley Road and Plantation Road was blocked off for police cars, but police say this is a residential area and traffic is not heavily affected.

American Red Cross of Hawaii and the City's parks department opened a shelter at Waianae District Park for residents who were evacuated.
